New Homes in Lancashire

Welcome to Lancashire

From seaside towns to sprawling forests, Lancashire is a diverse county in the North West of England, just a short drive from Manchester to the south and Kendal to the north. Encompassing the towns of Lancaster, Preston, Morecambe and Nelson, a new home in Lancashire could be the right choice for you if you want good transport links, lots of employment opportunities and plenty of family friendly attractions nearby.

A quick history

The county of Lancashire was founded in the 12th century, and by the time of the Industrial Revolution, the area was thriving. Liverpool and Manchester were once within its boundaries, but as the cities grew they eventually became counties in their own right. Over the centuries Lancashire has become known for its collieries, ship building and mill towns, and by the mid 19th century most of the world’s cotton was made in the area. Today, the county is a thriving tourist destination.

Business and industry

Today Lancashire is a thriving economic area with lots of big employers, including BAE Systems Military Air and Information in Preston, Rolls Royce in Barnoldswick and Lancaster University. Other employers in the county include the wholesale company James Hall & Co, the nuclear site Westinghouse Springfields, insurance group Homeserve, and Crown Paints in Darwen.

Things to do in the area

From historic sites to family-friendly days out, there are lots of things to do and places to see in Lancashire. If you enjoy uncovering the past, you can visit Lancaster Castle, Clitheroe Castle, Ribchester Roman Bath House and Hoghton Tower, or browse the exhibits at Lancaster City Museum, Lancaster Maritime Museum and the Museum of Lancashire.

For days out in the great outdoors, you can go for a walk in the Forest of Bowland, visit the seaside at Morecambe, or go for a bike ride along the Lancashire Cycleway. If you have kids, there are plenty of attractions to keep them entertained, from Brockholes Nature Reserve to Farmer Parrs Animal World, East Lancashire Railway and Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

Other places of interest in Lancashire include Williamson Park, Rivington Pike, Pendle Hill, the Harris Museum and Gawthorpe Hall.

Travel and commuting

Lancashire has good transport connections by road and rail, with the M6 running right through the county and the M55 connecting Blackpool with Preston. Other motorways in the region include the M61, the M62 and M65. If you’re travelling by rail, there are direct trains from Lancaster and Preston to London and Manchester.

The journey from Lancaster to Preston takes 35 minutes by car or just 15 minutes by train, while the journey to Manchester takes one hour 15 minutes by car or around one hour by train. If you’re travelling to London, the quickest way to get there from Lancaster is by train, with the fast Virgin Trains service taking under two and a half hours.

When it’s holiday time, Blackpool International Airport is located in Lancashire, while Manchester Airport and Leeds Bradford Airport are only a short drive away. There are also ferries to Ireland and the Isle of Man from Fleetwood and Heysham.
